    Winemaker's Notes:

    Cuvee Louise 1999 comes in her customary yellow dress with almost golden nuances, proof of the great maturity of the grapes from which she was crafted. Numerous aromas are unleashed in various registers ranging from mature red berries, over notes of beeswax and freshly dried acacia to flourishes of quince pate, all of them set off by a flourish of minerality that imbues this Louise with generosity and roundness.

    On the palate, the overall sensation is clear and without artifice. This champagne encompasses the freshness and finesse of silk enhanced by the reassuring warmth of velvet.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This folds smoky nut and mineral notes with flavors of white peach, orange peel, verbena and spice. Shows good energy and focus, with zesty acidity driving through to the finish, which echoes a pretty floral note. Drink now through 2018.

    Wine Spectator

    Austere up front, this wine's tight floral scents open to a splash of color in the finish, as vivid as a 1960s Marimekko print. The lasting impression is bold and creamy. Decant it for seared scallops and truffled mashed potatoes.

    Wine & Spirits

    Louise is always a light wine, almost feathery, and this 1999, now mature, maintains this style. It is delicate, its acidity just touched with toast and hints of citrus zest underneath. It doesn’t have a long future, so enjoy now.
